Content

Artists' books question traditional notions of the book as simply the carrier or container of a text. This unit explores the practice of artists' books and introduces students to creative strategies that will guide the construction of their own artists' book. It re-examines expectations of what a book is through exploration of form (e.g. scrolls, accordion, pop-ups, single sheet, sculptural); technique (painting, printmaking, collage, photography, written word, typography); narrative devices; and various modes of distribution (as uniques or as multiples). The unit foregrounds the relationships between content and form, and text and image.
